He did - and I think he outcoached K in the '99 Finals. Big part of that game was the guard for UConn (sr - forget his name) that grew up in Augusta as an older player/mentor/whatever to Avery. Knew Avery's every move and just completely took him out of the game. Cut off the head and well... Not that Rip Hamilton was any too shabby in that game. Was in Tampa - heartbreaker but great, great game. I recall screaming at K to put Magette in the game (who had a great game in the ACC Tourney against NC State and started when Langdon was banged up) and K looked zonked. Of course, we were to learn soon thereafter that he was going in for a hip replacement. I've always wondered if he was on narcotics that night, because he seemed a bit out of it.

The game in the semis was Deng trying to do much at the end and Okafor being a stud. Again, great game, but at least there I don't feel like K was outcoached.

How'd those Huskies do last year? Thus far this year? Don't matter - nothing matters until they cut down nets.

If you want, I can make you a copy of the tape where Laettner hit the buzzer beater against UConn in the NCAAs. Of course, I'm sure you recall that one.

Being a former New englander that just brought back the horror. I was pulling hard for Uconn in that one, especially since they beat Clemson in a miracle the game before.
